"People worry about inflation in an anticipatory kind of way, but we think the ECB is probably closer to tightening as they are unhappy with the German union deals," said Richard Koss, global bond portfolio manager at Brown Brothers Harriman.
At the same time, though, he expects the European Central Bank to hold off a little longer too.He noted that with several high profile elections coming up, the time may not be right to raise European rates.This belief prompted some to buy more European bonds as well.
Investors that stick to U.S. fixed-income markets also boosted their holding of U.S. Treasuries to 21 percent from 20 percent while they again cut holdings of U.S. corporate debt to 34.8 percent from 38 percent in April and from 48 percent in March.
Investors said there were still ongoing worries about the fallout from a growing accounting scandal.

"We lost about 9 million jobs in the private sector from the peak to the trough of the recession," reports Richard Koss, director of economics for Fannie Mae.
Speaking at the SourceMedia mortgage ..., 8 Nov 2013 [cached]
Speaking at the SourceMedia mortgage servicing conference in Dallas, Richard Koss, the director of mortgage market analysis for Fannie Mae, described the market as a one where home prices are affordable on the backs of low interest rates, but qualifying for a mortgage or saving for a down payment remains a challenge for most, especially the younger adult population.
2012 was a positive year for the economy with the housing sector contributing to overall economic growth for the first time in years.
We lost about 9 million jobs in the private sector from the peak to the trough of the recession and we have recovered about 6 million of those jobs, so we are two-thirds of the way back. But it has been four years, and we really should be well past that because the overall population has grown in the meantime, so it still remains a pretty anemic recovery, Koss said.
We also lost 2 million construction jobs during the recession and have recovered only 300,000 of them, he added.
Koss, on the other hand, is comfortable
